A Few of My Favorite (DIY) Things!


The Hill is Alive with the Sound of Music! The office can’t stop listening to the soundtrack which has inspired us to come up with some fun, easy & inexpensive DIY costumes for you to consider for this Saturday’s costume contest at the Sound of Music Sing-A-Long.

Raindrops on Roses:

This pretty headband took us all of 15 minutes to make, the toughest part was picking out what color roses to use! We just hot glued three roses on a wide headband – added some small cut out raindrops and we were set. *Red lipstick optional

Whiskers on Kittens:

We found some designer pearl kitten ears we just knew we could recreate! Using floral wire, we beaded pearl beads found at a craft store & then bent the wire in the center creating a triangle. We wrapped the ends of the wire around a thin headband and MEOW! We used simple eyeliner to draw on the whiskers and nose. This purrrty DIY cost us just under $4 to make.

Girls in White Dresses with Blue Satin Sashes:

Is there really anything sweeter? For this DIY look, we raided our closest for a white dress & simply tied a pretty blue satin bow around the waist. If this doesn’t yodel Sound of Music, we’re not sure what does!
